Very Large Quantities of R/X in Carry On

Jump to last reply

I hope I'm on the right board. I am going to Paris for a very quick trip, for a doctor's appointment. Arriving one morning, have appointment in Paris two hours after landing and then going right back to airport for an early evening flight. The purpose of my doctor's visit is for a follow up visit/consult but also to collect six months worth of r/x vitamin/supplement for myself and six months for my son (who is not traveling with me). I don't know exactly how the medicine will be packaged, but it will be capsules, not liquid, and I should think there could be 12 bottles in total. Possibly fewer, but a fairly large number. They will be sealed with my name on them and my son's, and I expect I can get a copy of the prescription and a letter, if necessary, from my doctor. He's a bona fide specialist, but I'm worried about carrying all this medicine. I guess I should call Air France; hopefully they won't flag my reservation as a drug mule?? I've looked online but can't find info that pertains exactly to my situation. I suppose I could check my bag and put it in there, rather than in a carryon, but do they xray checked luggage these days? It would be painful to check a bag when I have virtually nothing in it, but if it simplifies the matter, I'll do it. Any advice, appreciated!
